This Chinese Fine Arts School Looks A Lot Like Hogwarts

Would attending school in a magical setting make you a better artist? We can ask the students of the Hebei Academy of Fine Arts in China because their new facilities strongly resemble the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You can spot the similarities in the multiple pointed towers and the in the placement of the windows.

Looking at the buildings makes me hum the Harry Potter theme in my head. People have commented on the connection to Hogwarts, but the university’s dean, Zhen Zhongyi, said it was not intentional and that the campus was simply inspired by European Gothic architecture. I’d still keep my eyes peeled for the Boy Who Lived and He Who Must Not Be Named.
